WCF RIA Services Part 5 is out

Part 5 of my 10 part series on WCF RIA Services is now up on The Silverlight Show at http://www.silverlightshow.net/items/WCF-RIA-Services-Part-5-Metadata-and-Shared-Classes.aspx.

In this article, I explain the role and use of metadata classes to add attributes and functionality to existing entity classes that you cannot easily modify directly, such as the properties on an Entity Framework entity. Additionally, I show how you can define chunks of shared code on the server side and how they become available client side through the RIA Services code generation.
